In No Turning Back, Dan Burns shares an eclectic mix of stories that push the boundaries of genre and imagination. Told with realistic and thought-provoking prose, each of the stories shine light on characters who, as a result of a particular experience, realize that they can't go back in time or to the way life use to be. Moving forward is the only option, and what comes next is anyone's guess.
In "Come Out, Wherever You Are", a man retreats to his home in the woods to live out the rest of his life in solitude. He hopes to evade the public eye but instead finds himself both a victim and beneficiary of circumstance.
"At the End of the Day" is a story of forbidden and improbable love. After working together for more than five years, a man and woman begin a relationship they never dreamed was possible.
In the title story, "No Turning Back", a young paratrooper on a flight into enemy territory gets to think about and face his ultimate fears.
The author accompanies each story with his personal notes regarding the thoughts and ideas that inspired him to write the story, adding a unique behind-the-scenes perspective of the writing process.
